Marcus Lush

Popular and idiosyncratic radio talkback host Marcus Lush chronicled his love affair with the railways on high-rating television show Off the Rails, which won him the award for best presenter at the 2006 NZ Screen Awards. Lush followed it with Ice, which saw him spending time in Antarctica, and in 2010 picked up another best presenter award for South.  

I stopped shaving when I turned 40. My father’s always had a good beard. I don’t think it’s a homage to him. He’s still alive and he’s still got a good beard, but not as good as mine. Maybe it’s an alpha male thing.
